Okay, so it totally seems like College Prep is turning into a blog about documentaries. I swear, I think I have a serious problem. I've been zipping through them on Netflix at an alarming rate.
Last weekend, I wasn't feeling 100%. I think I've been super dehydrated from the heat and I was just resting/recovering in bed with bottles of Gatorade. I was scrolling through the kid section on Netflix (don't judge! you never know what you'll find!) and saw that the Katy Perry documentary was on there.
I had seen the trailer, but I really don't know much about Katy Perry at all. Curiosity got the best of me and I decided to just go for it considering I couldn't find anything else and I was seriously not feeling well at that point. Oh my gosh. It was amazing.
So many things are covered in the documentary. Katy's work ethic and drive. Her dedication to her family, fans, and music. The trials and tribulations of her marriage. The story arc of her life. The people closest to her and the role they play in the making of the concert. Oh, and the songs.
Honestly, I kind of thought she was an overnight success with "I Kissed a Girl," but she had been working at it SO MUCH before she finally "made it."
Totally inspiring. Totally bright and colorful. And totally catchy.
Plus, one of my favorite songs is "Firework"! (See, this is a seasonal post for Fourth of July!)
My favorite Youtube band (they're all sisters!) Cimorelli does such a great cover of the song:
Have you seen Katy Perry's Part of Me?
